San Diego Mormon Temple Orbit

 

The Mormon Temple in San Diego is a very picturesque site as you drive up along the 5 (that’s Interstate 5 for you non-natives!).  It’s hard to miss as you approach UCSD and the UTC area of town.  Tall, gleaming white and glorious, it stands tall above its surrounding.  I hope you enjoy this different view of it from above.  This short video was filmed with a Phantom 3 Professional in 4K using the Litchi app and downscaled to 1080p for the Internet.  Color grading was done with Adobe Premiere Pro.

Torrey Pines to Del Mar Beach

 

This is a rather long flight distance wise up the southern California coast from Torrey Pines to Del Mar and back.  Since I was flying fast, the flight was just about 7 minutes.  Distance wise we’re looking at roughly 3.5 miles round trip.  There were sections of the beach where was not a lot of beach goers.  It wasn’t until I got to Del Mar proper that you saw more people on the beach.  It was such a gorgeous day for flying too!  The flight was done using the DJI Go app on an iPhone 6 Plus and filmed with a Phantom 3 Professional in 4K.  Color grading was done in Adobe Premiere Pro and it was downscaled to 1080p for the Internet.

Mt. Helix 360 Degrees Orbit with Litchi

 

This is one of my very first orbit/POI flight using the Litchi app.  Setup was a breeze and can be done completely offline.  You select Orbit as the flight mode and then select on the map where you’d like to put the Point of Interest.  Once that’s placed, you can tap on the POI point and edit its attributes like speed, radius, altitude, where the camera’s pointed at, direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) and more.  After that it’s just a matter of hitting Play and your Phantom’s off & flying.  Easy!
